The lips of the wise spread knowledge; not so the hearts of fools.
ADONAI detests the sacrifices of the wicked but delights in the prayers of the upright.
ADONAI detests the way of the wicked but loves anyone who pursues righteousness.
Discipline is severe for one who leaves the way, and whoever can't stand correction will die.
Sh'ol and Abaddon lie open to ADONAI; so how much more people's hearts!
A scorner does not like being corrected; he won't go to the wise [for advice].
A glad heart makes a face happy, but heartache breaks the spirit.
The mind of a person with discernment seeks knowledge, but the mouth of a fool feeds on folly.
For the poor, every day is hard; but the good-hearted have a perpetual feast.
Better little with the fear of ADONAI than great wealth coupled with worry.
Better a vegetable dinner with love than a stall-fattened ox with hate.
